It never entered Brett Nibbe's mind during the Wisconsin State Indoor Archery Championship that he was about to break the state indoor record. Nibbe, son of Brock and Linda Nibbe of Red Wing, did just that by running away with the youth male compound freestyle class. More than 300 competitors from Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois participated Feb. 8 at Wisconsin Rapids.
BAY CITY -- Nissi Young, 24, her daughter, Jazamyn, 7, and mother, Beth Ruble of Bay City are packing for a long-awaited trip to Disney World and Sea World through the Dream Foundation. Young has had liver cancer for two years and doctors can do nothing more for her. She had 75 percent of her liver removed, then the cancer spread to her lymph nodes.
ROCHESTER -- A few months ago, the Red Wing boys basketball team stood at 5-4 and had just lost four straight games. At that point, Coach Kraig Ulveling was close to losing his team. But Ulveling made the Wingers believe they could win. And they proved again Friday night that believing in yourself is what's truly important. Red Wing advanced to the state tournament for the fifth straight season, downing high-flying Rosemount 53-39 in the Section 1AAA title game at Mayo Civic Arena. After the game, Ulveling made good on a promise that came before the playoffs started.

The city's promotional partnership with the Red Wing Area Chamber of Commerce ended this morning when the City Council voted to discontinue the 8-year-old agreement. The move came four days after the council voted to terminate its lease with the chamber at the train depot on Levee Street. During a special meeting, the council voted 5-1 with no discussion to terminate the promotional agreement. President Steve Castner made the motion, and Joe Krueger made the second.
